Something good from it

What irritates you does not last. Consider that, let go of the irritation, and move on.

What frustrates you provides insight into your own priorities. Use that as an opportunity to focus on those priorities rather than on the frustration.

What angers you gives you energy. Find a way to point that energy in a positive, productive direction.

What frightens you alerts you to possible dangers. Use that awareness to better prepare yourself for successfully handling or avoiding the dangers.

What initially arrives as difficulty, discomfort or unpleasantness can be turned to your advantage. That’s been the catalyst for much of your skill, wisdom, strength, and will continue to be.

What is going on in your world right now, and how can you make something good from it? Challenge yourself to find a way, for your very own history proves that you will.

— Ralph Marston
